Noble claims that a potential roadster variant of its M600 would have the same handling abilities as the coupe.
Although it’s just an illustration, Noble is fully serious about building a roadster version of its M600 coupe. Thing is, this image was reportedly first released last June and there hasn’t been any word regarding the car’s progress ever since. Fortunately, the UK-based supercar builder has just rereleased it as a reminder to the public that such as a car could happen soon. According to Noble’s managing direct, Peter Boutwood, "We haven’t built or tested one, but it is a feasible project."
If an M600 roadster variant were to be given the production green light, it would likely come with a removable carbon fiber roof panel that would be stored in the engine bay. Fortunately, removing the roof wouldn’t affect the M600’s handling because the panel isn’t structural. Boutwood further clarified that "It’s not about how it looks, it’s about how it goes and drives. We wouldn’t compromise the car." The standard M600 is powered by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that’s produces 650 horsepower and 604 lb-ft of torque.
